The Son of God died and rose ק

The qof ק is drawn as a kaf כ with the tail going to the grave, and then springing to life again to return to heaven. The two aspects of the metaphor is the death and the resurrection of the Son of God. The name of the letter means encompass or surround. This is another way of saying that we are in him. [1]

It should be no surprise that “he arose” is the word kuwm קם, or he finished the work in the flesh ם by dying and rising again ק.

The “end” qetz קץ is another way of saying “It is finished” [2]  It is the death ץ during the death and resurrection of the Son of God ק. This word means “the end (of time)”.

The word for “glowing embers” is qed קֵד; meaning the law ד after the resurrection קֵ. Who can live by the law after the resurrection?

Isa 33:14 The sinners in Zion are afraid; fearfulness hath surprised the hypocrites. Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire? who among us shall dwell with everlasting burnings? קֵד.

No one, for the law kills:

2Co 3:6 ¶ Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

The voice qal קל is the teaching ל of the death and resurrection ק.

And after the death and resurrection ק, if you understand ח, he “takes you” qech קח.


  • Ac 17:28 For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

Joh 19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.


The cross צ

The tsadi צ is like the ayin ע but it touches in the lower right corner, which I call the point of the cross. It symbolizes the reconciliation of Holiness and Love on the cross. It is a symbolism of righteousness. It’s name means side and provision. Just as Eve was taken from the side of Adam while he slept/died, so the church was formed from the cross. As Holiness and Love were joined on the cross, provision was made for man to live; hence the lower horizontal from the cross.

The word for tree ets עץ with letters representing sin ע and righteousness ץ. Christ though righteous, bore our sin on the tree/cross.

The word for flourish or blossom is tsuwts צץ, which is the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (the tree of death). The first emphasizes the life given through the cross; the second emphasizes the death. Jesus was called the firstfruit; he was the first living thing on earth, spiritually speaking. He blossomed, flourished and was fruitful through the cross.

The word for “go forth” is tsa צא with a new heaven and earth after the cross. [1]

Covered wagon, tsab צב is he righteousness of God צ, come into man ב, and working his will in the world (the symbol of wheels and chariots).

The law has a shadow of the kingdom of heaven [2]. The word for shadow is tsel צל which is the teaching ל of the cross צ.

The wrath of God was poured out on mankind in Jesus on the cross. The word for poured is tsaq צק, meaning the Son of God dies and rose ק on the cross צ. [3] [4]

And instruction, tsav צו means to clarify ו the cross צ.



  • Re 21:1 ¶ And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
  • Heb 10:1 ¶ For the law having a shadow of good things to come, [and] not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.
  • Eph 5:6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.

Ro 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Ro 1:19 ¶ Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed [it] unto them.


He spoke in parables פ

The pe פ is drawn as a kaf כ with a yod י hanging from it. The Son of God כ would do a new thing י:

Isa 43:19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, [and] rivers in the desert.

The pe פ represents allegory [1], parables and dark sayings [riddles] [2] [3],types [4] , shadows [5], as well as the mystery [6] itself.

The visible yod י hanging from the kaf כ produces an invisible yod in the body of the pe פ. The allegory, parables, riddles, types, shadows and mystery speak of invisible things using visible things. They speak of the heavenly things using earthly things.

The name of the letter pe means eye and answer. Seeing is a metaphor for understanding. The literal historical record is only part of what is being said in scripture. True understanding comes from the wisdom of God expressed in allegory, parables, riddles, types, shadows and the mystery, which all speak of Christ.

Observe two words for mouth: peh פה and pum פם. The first is the mystery which is not understood. The second is the mystery being fulfilled. When Jesus understood ח the mystery פ it ensnared pach פח him to the cross. [7]

Many theologians completely misunderstand why Jesus spoke in parables. They say that he did so in order to better communicate with simple people. This error prevents them from seeing the deep mysteries of the OT scriptures. Jesus said he spoke in parables so that they would not understand:

Lu 8:10 And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand.
Mt 13:13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.
Mt 13:14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:
Mt 13:15 For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and [their] ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with [their] eyes, and hear with [their] ears, and should understand with [their] heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

Some say that he hid the meaning from those who did not want to hear. The problem is that the answer ignores the fact that none want to hear:

Ro 3:11 There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.

Jesus instructed his disciples in the mystery, knowing that they would forget it until reminded by the Holy Spirit after he rose from the dead.

Joh 14:26 But the Comforter, [which is] the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

No one was to understand the mystery, and get saved, without the cross. Jesus had to die alone first. Then the mystery was revealed.

Ro 16:25 ¶ Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began,

The Old Testament is like a “where’s Waldo”book, but no one knew they were supposed to look for Waldo, and they only had hints of what he would look like if they did. The testimony of the Apostles tells us what we are supposed to look for.

Being made to be sin ע

The ayin ע is drawn with two vavs ו which join above the lower horizontal, and then touch it farther to the left than in the corner where most letters touch. I call that right lower corner, the point of the cross, where the word of God meets man. the aiyin misses it. It’s origins start apart from each other along the upper horizontal representing holiness and love.

The primary metaphor is that holiness and love are joined, but not at the cross. This is the symbol of mixing. All the laws against mixing prohibit mixing holiness and grace. We cannot comprehend them if they are mixed apart from the cross.

Though Jesus was without sin in his life on earth [1], it was insufficient to save us. He was holiness and love reconciled in his flesh, but we still did not understand it. The lower part is in the earth, but not of it (slightly above). At the end of the tail (his life) he bore our sin and was made equal to us in sin as well.

As with many metaphors, there is a positive and negative way to express it. Water destroys and gives life, fire destroys and purifies. The ayin not only represents Christ in the flesh, but also the flesh itself and religion without the cross (which puts the self/flesh first). Evidence of these meanings comes from the word barah ברע, meaning in evil or son of evil.

The Hebrew word rea רע means evil, thought, neighbor, shout. Isn’t it interesting that when Jesus said to love your neighbor, he could also have said to love your enemy just by using the word rea. By the letters it says: revelation ר in the flesh ע. The carnal mind (in the flesh) is war with God.[2]

The word ed עד means testimony. By the letters it means the flesh ע speaks ד.

The word eth עת means time or era. By the letters it means the purpose or end ת of flesh ע.

The word ol על means yoke. By the letters it means to the flesh ע teaching ל is a yoke or bondage על.

The word ar ער or er ער means awake. By the letters the flesh ע received a revelation ר .

The name of the letter ayin means humiliation and depravity.


  • Heb 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as [we are, yet] without sin.

Ro 8:7 Because the carnal mind [is] enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.


Fulfilled the spiritual works of God ס

The samekh ס is like the final mem ם but it has rounded corners instead of square. It’s meaning is the same as the final nun; the son completed the promise of the Father. The mem is the completion in the flesh, and the samkh, the completion in the spirit.

Sodom סדם means burning. The letters tell us that the completed work, in spirit (samekh ס) and flesh (final mem ם), of the law (dalet ד) is burning.

2Co 3:6 ¶ Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

Jacob’s ladder or stairway cullam סלם says that the completed work in the spirit and flesh has teaching (lamed ל) at it heart. The teaching theme pops out everywhere. In the name Elohim, man is separated from God because they do not understand that He is Holy; confirmed by Ro 1:18ff. The solution is the kingdom of heaven which is like teaching (leaven). Jesus taught the crowds and his disciples. The New Jerusalem is the New Teaching of Peace. His disciples are to go… teaching. Leaders in the church are to teach men who can in turn teach.

No man has seen the Father, so Jesus, the Son, makes him known through teaching, with the cross being central to that teaching.

Consider creation again: The firmament and Spirit were both between the waters. With water representing the word of God, Jesus and the Spirit bridge the gap between holiness and love. The word caphim ספם means door or threshold. The pe פ in the middle (between the two fulfilled word) represents parables, riddles and the mystery hidden from the beginning. The mystery is the heart of the finished work of God in heaven and earth; in the spirit and flesh. Christ is the door[1] He is the one who reveals the mystery, or the purposes of God in the Spirit, by fulfilling them in the flesh.

The word car ‘pronounced sar’ means sullen. The fulfilled spiritual work is that the revelation causes conviction of sin.

The word cab סב means to turn around. By the letters, the spiritual fulfillment ס is the revelation to man ב. It is preaching that calls men to repentance; to turn around. First it causes conviction with ‘car’ then as it penetrtates ‘into’ man ב, he repents.

Ro 10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?

When a sacrifice was made, those making the sacrifice would eat parts of it. Eating is a metaphor for learning. The cal (pronounced ‘sal’) is the basket that carried the bread of sacrifice and what Gideon used for the flesh of the sacrificial kid. By the letters it means that the fulfilled purpose of God ס is by teaching ל.

The Son of Man נ

The nun נ is similar to the kaf כ with shorter horizontals. The kaf is the Son of God; the nun is the Son of Man. The long horizontals on the kaf mean taht he was fully God and fully man. The shorter horizontals on the nun mean that he was limited God and limited man. These are not contradictions, but different views of the same Christ.

The Son of God ‘closed his eyes ‘ to his divinity as he became a man.

Php 2:6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
Php 2:7 But made himself of no reputation (κενόω kenoo to make void), and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:

He did not cease to be God. This is important to understand. Many rail against the idea, and properly so, that Jesus never ceased to be God. He did not give up his godhood. He chose not to use his attributes of divinity. One does not become blind when the eyes are closed.

Why would he do this? In order to be our high priest. He cannot be our high priest if he resisted temptation using his divinity. He would not have been tempted as we are. We would accuse him and say he does not know what it is to be man, and be tempted without the advantage that he had.

Heb 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as [we are, yet] without sin.

Those who deny his kenosis often find themselves having to defend silly ideas like a flying baby Jesus, or stories of him giving life to clay birds. They can’t really say he didn’t do these things. They can only say we don’t have authoritative sources to prove he did. And so the myths persist.

The best advocates for the anti-kenosis position have to ignore that Jesus said he only gave one sign, and attribute the rest to his personal power, rather than to the power of God through him as God worked through other prophets. This error makes them blind to the dialog between Father and Son through those same signs.

Evidence of his kenosis or emptying, is found in several places.

Jesus did not know the day of his return:

Mt 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no [man], no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

He only performed one sign, and this at the time of his death and resurrection: Mt 16:4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.

He taught people how to read the scriptures, because he read the scriptures. It is through them, that as a boy, he learned who he was and what he was to do. The anti-kenosis crowd, believing he used his omniscience, also attribute magic knowledge as the mechanism for Biblical inspiration. They believe that the NT authors had a portion of omniscience or magic knowledge to write the scriptures. They miss the lessons of the NT authors as they teach how to read the scriptures the way Jesus did.

He was actually tempted, which is contradictory to one who is affording himself access to the attributes of deity:

Jas 1:13 ¶ Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:

Jesus also limited himself as a man, not taking a family and having children; not building a home and earthly wealth.

The nun also has a final form where the tail extends below the line to death ן. It very closely resembles a larger vav and וis the symbol of the Son of Man on the cross. It tells us that Jesus did not use his divinity to help him through his tribulation and death on the cross.

The word nun means fish or posterity, which is why the fish was used as a symbol of the cross, and the children, or fruit of the cross… the church.

The covenant made by the Father מ

The mem is drawn with a kaf כ representing the Son of God, and a zayin ז representing the bride, connected at the top (in heaven). The Father chose the bride for the Son.

2Th 2:13 ¶ But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:

Recall that Abraham chose Rebekah as a bride for Isaac.[1]

When the mem is at the end of a word, a different form is used. The final mem ם is also connected at the bottom, signifying that the promise of the Father has been completed on earth. The Son is the one who completed the work of the Father. The final mem represents the Son. The two mems are just two forms of the same letter. The Father and the Son are two forms of the same God.

Joh 10:30 I and [my] Father are one.
Joh 14:7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
Joh 14:9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou [then], Shew us the Father?

When the mem is used as a prefix it is translated ‘from’. All good things come from the Father.

Jas 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

John is familiar with the meaning of the two mems and reminds his readers that there are three in heaven shamyim שמים who testify. The father mem מ , the Son final mem ם and the Spirit shin ש . He also demonstrates his knowledge of the meaning of the letters in earth artz ארץ.

The waters of Ge 1:2 mayim מים have the creation, represented by the yod י, surrounded by the Father מ and the Son ם. The Father is Spirit [2] and the Son is Truth [3].

To move a mountain to the waters… you worship in Spirit and in Truth.


  • Ge 24:4 But thou shalt go unto my country, and to my kindred, and take a wife unto my son Isaac.
  • Joh 4:24 God [is] a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship [him] in spirit and in truth.

Joh 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.


Taught ל

When drawing the lamed, a yod י extending to a vav ו begins above the upper horizontal to a point below the upper horizontal. The lower section in a small kaf כ (Son of God) which takes a turn into the grave.

From the heart of the Father (above the line) what can be known of God (upper horizontal) is brought closer to man (lower position). The lamed represents teaching. God makes what can be known about him more accessible. The primary topic is the cross.

The lamed first appears in Elohim אלהים meaning ‘God separated from his people because they don’t understand’. It also means ‘His sheep hear his voice’. El אל means God. Specifically, he is the creator א who teaches ל.

He is not a God who created and walked away. He teaches because his people do not understand and he desires for them to know him.

Jesus said he kingdom of heaven was like leaven [1]; and leaven is ‘teaching’.

Jerusalem means ‘teaching of peace’ and the New Jerusalem means the ‘new teaching of peace’. When Jesus preached the sermon on the mount, he said “You have heard it said… but I say” as he ushered in the new teaching of peace, the New Jerusalem, the kingdom of heaven.

As he called Israel, he said “You are my witnesses…”[2] and called them to teach about him. As he called the church he said “Go… teaching”.[3]

Culminating creation is the day when teaching is no longer required, because all will know him. [4]


  • Mt 13:33 Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.
  • [Isa 43:12]] I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when [there was] no strange [god] among you: therefore ye [are] my witnesses, saith the LORD, that I [am] God.
  • [[Mt 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, [even] unto the end of the world. Amen.

Heb 8:11 And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest.


The Son of God כ

The kaf represents the Son of God. The upper horizontal is full length indication that he is fully God. The lower horizontal says that he is fully man. Not only is he fully God, but he is the everything that God wishes to reveal to man.

The curves indicate the personality of God included in the revelation which became man.

Joh 14:7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
Joh 14:9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou [then], Shew us the Father?

The kaf is the Word made flesh.

Joh 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

As a prefix it has the meaning ‘like’. He was made like us.

Heb 2:17 Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto [his] brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things [pertaining] to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.
Php 2:7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:

A new creation י

The yud represents the first and complete thought that God had to create. It oozes from the blank page which represents God. Consider:

-Every letter is drawn by first drawing a yud.
-Every word is made of letters derived from the yud.
-Everything that was created was spoken into existence using words.
-Every thought is expressed in words.

The essence of everything that is created is contained in the infinitesimally small yud. It is like the hypothetical Big Bang of science, but it includes personality. Creation is the testimony of God.

Ps 19:1 ¶ « To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. » The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.

As a metaphor it represents God who thought the thought of creation. It represents the thought itself or the result of the thought.

The yud is known as the jot in Greek. Jesus said that not the tiniest part of any letter of the law would disappear before it was fulfilled. And since the tiniest part, the yud, represents all of creation, the meaning is that not one thing from the tiniest part to the whole will disappear before it is fulfilled.

The name of the letter, yud יד, means hand. The hand represents works. Creation is the work of God. The right hand represents his spiritual works, and the left hand represents his physical works.

The idea that words are formed from the meaning of the letters is foreign to those who think like Greeks (most of us). But his name yahweh has the dictionary meaning of “I am”

Yahweh יהוה is yah י , God, the creator (yud) י – of calamity (evil) havvah הוה

Isaiah 45:7 says: ‘…I make peace, and create evil [calamity]: I the LORD [Yahweh] do all these things.’

He created the system where you reap what you sow.

Job 4:8 Even as I have seen, they that plow iniquity, and sow wickedness, reap the same.

He created the system that brings to fruit the calamity that we sow by plowing in sin. And this system is good, even though we choose calamity. Suffering is a schoolmaster of the flesh to drive us back to God.

“It is not supposed to be this way” is the cry of reaping our own harvest, and acknowledging that God’s harvest is better.
